We hope you’ll join us for the ninth year of this hands-on, skill-building event! Wear clothes to play in and pack your water bottle.

Some of the workshops can help support projects you might already have at home, so consider bringing your knitting project, a small electronic item in need of repair, any knives that need sharpening, or your ukulele for participating in a jam session. You can also prepare a labeled item for the potluck lunch, and maybe pick something from your garden or grab something from your pantry to add to a pot of stone soup. Plants for the plant swap are welcome as well.

While you’re here, enjoy a variety of hands-on workshops, including old favorites like building a bluebird box and treadle sewing, as well as some new selections like sashiko embroidery and building a tiny house on a trailer.

We’re sure you’ll leave with some new skills and knowledge, a new project completed or a new plant for your garden, and a newfound appreciation for the sharing of hands-on learning and inspiration for your summer projects.
